Blockchain leaders event - Unbundling the hype

No other emerging technology has generated more media buzz in Switzerland than cryptocurrencies, smart contracts and the underlying distributed ledger technology. The question is not “if” but “how and when” to start exploring and getting use of Blockchain technology.

While some perceive the new technology as being overhyped, industries spanning from banking, insurance, energy, manufacturing to government have already invested a significant amount to build Blockchain based prototypes or even solutions.

PwC Digital Services will show real-life Blockchain prototypes on stage and critically address the key questions for executives to have an unbiased roadmap for a successful Blockchain potential analysis and planning.

  • Business versus technology maturity – What is the current stage of Blockchain?
  • What are the business opportunities for companies in Switzerland?
  • “Play now” or “wait and see” – What is the right time, approach and the roadmap to adopt to Blockchain?
